Are you a fan of BMWs? Let me know in the comments!
As an owner of two BMWs in the past - the 2006 BMW 3-Series and the 2011 BMW 135i M Sport - I used to be a huge fan of the Bavarian brand. However, after a while, I lost interest in BMW. In my personal opinion, they were taking too long to catch up with their competitors. Nonetheless, all that has changed and I feel myself falling in love with BMW all over again.
Of course, that budding love got taken to the next level when I found out I was going to spend a week with the highly-anticipated resurrection of the 8-Series with the new 2019 BMW M850i xDrive Coupe. Some of you have probably seen my BMW M850i xDrive Q&A but if you haven’t just check out my story highlights). In there you’ll see me take back my word on how I feel that the new Lexus LC is the end all and be all of sports grand tourers - that’s because the new BMW 8-Series is that impressive. Everything about this car is the pinnacle of what one would expect in this segment and price tag. It looks outstanding, the performance is mindblowing, and the interior is probably one of the best places to be.
If you want to get a closer look, hang out with me over the next few days as I bring you all the facts and details on the new 2019 BMW M850 xDrive. Let me know in the comments if you have any specific questions and I’ll be sure to answer them.
